General definition (in Jainism)
Saṅkrandana (सङ्क्रन्दन) refers to a name of Indra, according to chapter 1.2 [ādīśvara-caritra] of Hemacandra’s 11th century Triṣaṣṭiśalākāpuruṣacaritra (“lives of the 63 illustrious persons”): a Sanskrit epic poem narrating the history and legends of sixty-three important persons in Jainism.
“[...] Then Maghavan made an image of the son of Nābhi, and put it down at the side of Lady Śrī Marudeva. He made himself five-fold; then there were five Śakras. Suitable devotion to the Master cannot be made by people with one body. Of these, one Saṅkrandana came forward, bowed, and said reverently, ‘O Blessed One, allow me’, and with auspicious devotion took the Lord of the World, as if he were good fortune incarnate, with hands covered with gośīrṣa-sandal”.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
